A pdf of THIRTEEN (13) - a baker's dozen! - individual poetry activities that will allow students to play with language, understand form and structure, and be creative. Includes traditional options such as haikus and limericks but also more creative and non-traditional options such as a collaborative poem (modified exquisite corpse), turning pop songs into sonnets, and boiling down an anecdote into a poem with step-by-step instructions. Each activity is set up as its own handout with instructions and examples included.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Activities would work for grades 7 through 12.
